Description

This is the eliminate problem that avoids the good jug flake to the right until near the top. Start sitting at crimp slot on prow, move up to good solid jug pinch. Make big move to the left to get sloper up high, then chuck right hand to good flake and easy topout.

[Hide Comment] Anyone know how high you have to throw your right hand on the flake for it to count as a V4? I feel like if it’s too low it’s too easy of a move, even if the crux is going to the sloper on the left, but going to the very very top seems way to difficult for a V4. Dec 3, 2020

[Hide Comment] It was pretty close to the top, if not the very top. It was a long time ago, so I don't remember exactly, but I went as high as I could before grabbing the good hold. Dec 4, 2020
